Reviews for Louise:
'Louise Dearman and Laura Pitt-Pulford star as the conjoined twins, and are simply stunning in their portrayals, perfectly capturing the hidden torment of the sisters whose unwavering loyalty towards one another eventually fends off damaging outside influences.'
'It’s when Dearman and Pitt-Pulford fill the auditorium with the most spellbinding musical truisms, that the audience is really treated however, with a pair of performances, which will undoubtedly earn the acclaimed pair further plaudits.' - The Sweet London Life
'While capturing the heart and soul of the Hilton sisters, both Dearman and Pitt-Pulford are utterly mesmerising, with their duets beautifully balanced, ensuring Henry Krieger’s sumptuous melodies and Bill Russell’s wonderfully lustrous lyrics really take flight.' - London News Online
'Louise Dearman’s Daisy is both genuinely funny and deeply troubled – her heartbreak during a scene set at New Year is palpable.' - From The Box Office
‘…led by the excellent Louise Dearman and Lara Pitt-Pulford as the English-born ‘siamese’ sisters, bring so much vitality and vocal prowess to proceedings’ - Time Out London
'Thanks to the powerhouse performances of Louise Dearman (probably the only person to have actually played all three leads inWicked and Evita) and Laura Pitt-Pulford. They are an unqualified sensation. Dearman, charismatic and sassy as ambitious Daisy, and Pitt-Pulford, heartbreakingly vulnerable as sweet Violet, simply could not be bettered.' - WhatsOnStage
